. in other words, this is a back stop to the negotiations that secretary kerry has had and that the president has pointed to. but, amazingly, the obama administration has taken the very bizarre position that the democrats who are supporting this legislation, this backstop legislation that would do nothing to undermine the negotiations between the secretary of state and other nations in the region, the president is now urging democrats to stop supporting this important piece of backstop legislation, even though a commanding majority of the united states senate has indicated their support for it. in fact, the president has gone so far as to promise a veto of this legislation if it reaches his desk. and, of course, it is not true, as the president argues, that this legislation would effectively sabotage the geneva deal. in truth and in fact, what it would do is it would provide, as i said, a backstop but reinforce what the president and secretary kerry are so proud of in terms of what they've already negotiated. if iran follows through, then this sanctions legislation would be of little force an
